This move is part of their broader mission to grow their EV fleet across 20 Indian cities. The initiative reflects a joint commitment to sustainability, aiming to reduce the carbon footprint in the delivery ecosystem by transitioning from conventional vehicles to eco-friendly EVs.
BLive is focused on addressing EV scarcity by providing comprehensive solutions for last-mile delivery companies, with a particular emphasis on Tier II cities to bridge the supply gap and meet the demands of last-mile delivery services.

He emphasized the positive environmental impact of electric vehicles and expressed anticipation for the transformative change Ather’s electric scooters will bring to the city’s delivery landscape.
As India’s first multi-brand EV platform, BLive plays a crucial role in promoting electric mobility adoption nationwide. Featuring over 40 brands on its digital platform, BLive offers an omnichannel experience, including an E-commerce store and premium experience stores across the country.
The company aims to expand its footprint to 100 premium multi-brand stores by 2024, offering a diverse range of EV products and services, from E-Scooters and E-cycles to Delivery Ebikes and other unique form factors.
